Catal is one of those restaurants people tend to pass by; you can't see enough of it from the walkway, and it appear to be a little too fancy for a casual meal while shopping or getting away from the parks for a while. However, the restaurant rewards those who take the time to enter. Catal is open for all meals, and is a nice breakfast option.

Dining here nearly ruined my Disneyland trip. Two adults and one child ate there because every other "good" restaurant in the park was booked solid. Now I know why this one was nearly empty. The prices are exhorbitant for the meals served. $20 for a scoop of pasta just barely coated with tomato sauce! No meatball, no meat sauce, not even a small salad, and not so much as an extra spoonful of sauce dribbled over the pasta. The taste was completely mundane (I could have done better at home with a jar of Classico). And one of the meals was served cold! The child ordered the $12 cheeseburger from the kids' menu and advised us that it "wasn't very good" - it had a grainy texture and very little flavor. Okay, Disneyland is not a cheap vacation, and one must understand that food costs a lot more there than at home. But if you have money to burn in Anaheim, burn it in a place where at least you'll get a decent meal. IMO, Disney should be ashamed to have this rip-off joint operating under its banner.

Guests: Adrienne, Tony & AVP, Alex, Sheila, Mox, Jennifer and me
What we had: Calamari appetizer, spicy chicken wings appetizer, chicken Panini sandwich, Gazpacho, Manchego compressed salad, Cobb salad, penne pasta with tomato sauce. I don't recall who had what except that I had the salad and Jen had the pasta.

Service: Fair to good. Granted this was a large group (eight) on a busy night, but we were rather neglected at times. It took probably twenty minutes to get a table (or more accurately, two round tables pushed together), but drink and food orders were taken pretty quickly. The worst wait was, unaccountably, when it came time to request the check; our server was nowhere to be found. Drink refills were reasonably frequent.

Nearby smokers were again an issue, especially the guy with a stogie at the next-but-one table. As the Uva Bar was the only place still serving food at this late hour, we were stuck unless we wanted to go to Denny's.

Would we go back: Despite the somewhat negative tone above, the answer is still yes. In fact, we'll likely be there tomorrow night, and I'm eagerly anticipating a Ketel One martini.

My friend and I stopped of to eat at The Uva Bar at Downtown Disney and were pleasantly surprised by the attentive staff and the hearty meal. After nothing but chicken fingers and french fries in the park, my Ahi Tuna salad was a welcomed change of pace. The flavor was unique and the salad was filling for its price of about $15. My friend and I shared the mezze platter, which was great. The drinks are a bit expensive but they have a lot of choices that I've never seen before. The best part about our experience had to be the service. Our server Rachel went out of her way to accomodate us with changes in our party size and requests from the menu. She was very attentive and funny and made our dinner a true experience. I definately reccomend going by the uva bar, even if it is just for a drink. and say hi to Rachel for us!
